Autism in Media: Fantasy vs. Reality
Saturday January 19th | 730 PM – 830 PM | Armadillo Theatre
Over the last several years, we’ve seen growing awareness of autism spectrum disorder and increased media representation in video games, comics, television, and film. Portrayals range from non-verbal savants to simply quirky. But what’s real and what’s fiction? Can you accurately and respectfully portray something so multifaceted? Join Take This and our panel of mental health experts, creators, and autism activists as we discuss all this and more.
